I have a Hitachi video cassette player and recorder FX880E about 40 years old.
what cables would I need to connect to todays tv.
It as the scart connections at the back .

Welcome to JA, how old is your current TV you want to connect your Video Recorder too?

I haven't heard from you in some time, assuming you need to convert from SCART output to HDMI input you can use a device such as the one here which costs around £10

Do let me know if you need anything clarified.

Got scart to hdmi box connected it to Samsung 43 inch smart tv with usb and hdmi but tv does not recognise it.

This suggests your fault is with the video player not output the signal so this is a hardware fault on the player itself, if you are confident your conversion box is powered up and setup correctly (converting scart to HDMI rather than HDMI to scart).
